The Association of International Certified Professional Accountants provides the world’s most highly skilled accountants with knowledge, insight and foresight to meet the demands of a disruptive world. It is a driving force in a dynamic profession that powers trust, opportunity and prosperity for people, businesses and economies worldwide.

Approximately 2,500 volunteers serving across nearly 200 official groups work and are committed to protecting the public interest, speaking with the power of more than 650,000 professional accountants and students around the world. In addition, all AICPA conferences have volunteer committees that work diligently on the logistics and content creation to help plan the spectacular events held year-round.
